Following similar rule directions around the world at Junior Alpine Ski Racing the complete stop rule has been implemented at the Victorian Interschools in 2019.

7.8 Disqualifications
A racer abandons if he or she comes to a complete stop on the course. The racer must exit to the
side of the course as soon as possible to avoid interfering with the next racers run. They will
record a DNF for that run.

Clarifications:

  • A racer if impeded by a course worker, another skier or a gate down etc they may pull off to the side of the course, not go through the finish and request a re-run.
  • If a competitor misses a gate and does not come to a complete stop can skate up and around the missed gate and continue.
  • In the event of a competitor losing a ski without coming to a complete the competitor may choose to continue on one ski.
